One of Liberia's leading professional players, Frank "Jaen"
Seator, has dispelled rumors that he and his family were expelled from Qatar
because of dress code.
Making the clarification in a telephone conversation
with our Sports Desk recently, player Seator said he was disappointed to
have heard that there was a newspaper article indicating that he and his
family were expelled from Qatar. "The paper carried the article without
contacting me while in the country."
He said for five years, he and his family lived in
Qatar without any problem. He disclosed that after his contract with Al Ta-awon
ended, his manager told him there was a another contract in the making for
him in another country. "That is why I was in Liberia awaiting on my manager
for signal before I could leave the country."
Commenting further in a serious mood, player Seator
frowned on the paper for such an article aimed at tarnishing he and his
Meanwhile, Seator has called on the paper to retract
the article to avoid any confrontation. "I respect the media in Liberia
because they have played a key role in promoting my career. I don't want any
problem between they and myself because we need each other."
In another development, player Seator has disclosed
that he is presently in Italy justifying his inclusion on Serie B side
Regianna. Regianna was in the Serie A recently before being relegated.
Several African players including Nigeria's Sunday Oliseh and
Sierra Leone's Mohammed Kallon have played for the club before.
According to player Seator, if all goes well he will join the
club at mid season. But he was quick to point out that he could be loaned to
North Africa, specifically Esperence of Tunisia, where he will play for some
time before returning to Italy.
Seator was invited to play for the National
football team, the Lone Star, for the African Cup of Nations qualifying
match against Guinea in September. After the match he was not called for the
match against Niger for what the coaches termed "lack of form".
The player stayed in Liberia for some time before
going to Italy based on arrangement concluded by his Manager. Seator has
been playing professional since 1995 beginning from Kuwait. He also played
in Saudi Arabia, Hungary and Sweden.
Seator was part of the Lone Star squad that participated in
the 2002 African Nations Cup finals held in Mali.
